Recommendation

History’s greatest thinkers shared a quality that media strategist Ryan Holiday calls “stillness.” This sense of calm equanimity lets you focus on what matters in each moment. Holiday describes how to cultivate stillness in mind, body and soul, drawing on a wide range of teachings and illustrating his concepts with tales of Abraham Lincoln, Tiger Woods and Winston Churchill. He offers a concise, entertaining survey of thousands of years of thought on imbuing everyday life with meaning, joy and sacredness.
